I'm not sure what to do with the musical crystals. what's the pattern? how do you find it out in the first place? Or is it all just guesswork?

Going left to right hit them in this order - 3 6 1 4 5 2. If you talk to the librarian he mentions that you always have to walk in a clockwise direction - seems the puzzle is very aware of this. Seems best to make large clockwise circles every time you have to loop back to an earlier stone (for instance from 6 back to 1 or from 5 back to 2). Once that's done you'll have the circle lit. As from there, I'm not too sure.

Talk to the jailer in the Jarl's castle and he'll tell you what to do after touching all the stones. If he's not at the jail, he'll be at the tavern.

Unless you mean the one underground, in which case I'm as stuck as you are. The crystals seem completely unrelated to everything else down there - another random guessing game?

*Got it...play them backwards. 25314 - left to right

Well, looks like you guys figured this one out :) I just wanted to point out that nothing in the game is guesswork. HTH!

Just curious, how did you or how were you supposed to figure it out, because I was stuck there for the longest time? Though I'm not known for my puzzle-solving skills so I was probably missing something.

To figure this out, you needed to observe the behaviour of the crystals when you clicked on them, and write things down. After that, it's a matter of logic. :)

When you try clicking on the crystals, four trigger another crystal, one doesn't, and one crystal is never triggered by another. Given that, there are only two possible combinations: follow the order in which the crystals trigger each other (beginning with the crystal that isn't triggered by another, and ending with the crystal which doesn't trigger another), or the reverse order.

The reason why so many people were stuck on this puzzle was a slight implementation problem that caused the right combination to not work under certain conditions (see other threads on this topic).

Ok, thanks. That actually makes far more sense than any of the complicated theories I was making up:)
